Nothing breeds more contempt for this world
Than memories now formed
Every moment a new seed is grown to no reason
The trouble unfolds for the trials of today
I'm no jury really don't care how you feel
The pleasant notion of miraculous change
Drifts into multiple jeers

You want the good life, you break your back
You snap your fingers, you snap your neck

Seconds drip through my hands
Washed of moments unborn
All the spaces between bleed
A tribute to a nightmare never exposed
A message to the forces
I've no pity don't know how thankful to feel
Expectations of my daily bread
Gives me the hunger to steal

You want the good life, you break your back
You snap your fingers, you snap your neck

    General Commentsuprising no one commented on this song, this is my fav song off their cd. I kinda think its about someone that is over confident or tries to hard and ends up messing up even worse trying so hard to do something right. Thats just my take on it

    General Commenti know what u mean Stevus85 one of my fave too .Altho to me this song is about money . "you want the good life you break your back " so if u want riches u have to work hard until u give up . "expectations of my daily bread gives me the hunger to steal" then this is about like ppl who steal stuf.. lol im just making it up here but then like the song goes into the chorus again so im thinking that that poor guy is making fun of the guy who works cuz he is just stealing and its easier?? eh.. well thats what im thinking.
